The Towns of Hingham, Cohasset, Hull and Scituate are pleased to report that a successful COVID-19 vaccination booster clinic was held yesterday.

The clinic, which took place at the South Shore Baptist Church, provided 90 doses of the Moderna booster to eligible residents age 18 and older. It was put on by the Health Departments of each of the four partner towns.

As part of the drive-up clinic, those receiving a booster remained in their vehicle during both the check-in process and while receiving their shot. Those receiving the booster were then guided to a designated area of the parking lot for medical observation post-vaccination.

"With the rise of COVID-19 cases throughout the region, every booster shot we can administer is a positive step toward reducing the spread of the virus among our residents," Hingham Fire Captain/EMS Coordinator Jeffrey Becker said. "These four partner communities worked together to put on this successful clinic and we will continue to look for ways to help our residents through the pandemic."
